Stephanie Harvey: Curiosity Is What Really Drives Us

stephharvey-curiosity

Can we teach curiosity to students? Stephanie Harvey doesn't think so. Children are innately curious, she says, and we shouldn't teach curiosity so much as foster and nurture it. "They come into kindergarten bursting with questions," she says.

In this video Stephanie Harvey acknowledges that educators need to model curiosity—every single day—so that students know to remain curious throughout their education.
